Kinda makes me nostalgic..sniff.
Those early cam lobes of soft chocolate, melting away some pride of Big H. Sniff.
And ole KPPER Snack Himself, showing us the errors of our thinking.
Snif, Sniff.

I guess none of the engines grenaded in this batch? Yay.

I'm not too sure that at $20k a pop there will be a "buying frenzy," but it is nice to see something other than the endless stream of I-4 Superbikes.

Did I predict a wave of 800cc V4s?

I'm vindicated!

Hey, maybe the Chinese can produce a 100cc V4 that fits in a bicycle frame?

Might be good....

I'd sheed myself of the street bike and the race bike for one of these babies!

One of these, with a proper can on it to uncork the V4 sound, would do nicely.

It will be interesting to see how reliable it is.

Although the stock can ain't the prettiest thing, it's loud enough to set off a car alarm in an alley. It's one of the best sounding motorcycles I've heard.

Aprilia asserts the crankshaft problem it had at the non-Factory RSV4 press launch was due to a supplier issue that has since been rectified.
